This is the fifth news report for Celeritas Eos Equilibrium of The Night which is an open world survival-horror-action-RPG for those of you are still unacquainted with this mod. In this report we will be discussing some of the companions and characters you will encounter in the mod and what their background is along with other details you need to know about them. The competition where you can design your very own quest is still open and several entries have already been submitted so now is as good as time as any to take especially since the competition ends by the end of the week...
But now onto the characters...
There are many people you will meet in Equilibrium of The Night. You will meet regular folk in the many villages, towns and cities that you will come across, you will meet unique folk who each have plenty to say, you will meet quest characters who have a quest associated with them, you will meet story characters who are all part of the story or a sub-plot in some way and then you will meet companions who are the characters who may help you in your quest should you accept their aid (or convince them to join you). Each companion is unique and has their own skills, personality, beliefs, morals and goals. To start with we shall introduce you to Elisha who is a righteous knight:
"We can fight these abominations and if we're doomed to fail then so be it! At least we'd have gone down fighting..."
Elisha is a knight of the now fallen and disbanded Order of the Light which was an order dedicated to "bringing light to the darkness" and slaying all things that are considered evil. The primary goal of the order was to venture into forgotten dungeons and caves where such evil might be hiding so that they may root it out and destroy it but the order soon expanded and even dealt with humans who had committed crimes worthy of death. Elisha was an experienced veteran of the order who had the respect and admiration of many of the youngsters within. He had participated in the clearing out of many forlorn dungeons and was famed by members within his order for the prowess he possessed with his bow, his bravery in battle and his calmness even in situations where all hope seemed lost until he turned the tide of battle. Indeed, the people who looked up to Elisha all endeavored to be like him but this all soon changed...
The Order of the Light lost many of its ruling members during the outbreak of the undead and those that remained were too inexperienced, too flippant and too uncaring to lead the order or even participate in bringing it out from the chaos it had fallen into. Young recruits soon turned to wine and women and others completely neglected their duties. It was during this time that people looked to Elisha to lead and that's where it all went to Hell...
Now Elisha roams the wild forests of Eridanus. Wearing nothing but is battered and broken armor and wielding only his bow for protection, Elisha seeks to right a terrible wrong and gain favor from God who he ardently worships.
"Worry not woman. I do not desire to rob you or rape you as others roaming these woods would likely desire. I am but a simple traveler attempting to survive in this world forsaken by God. By the sounds of it you are attempting to survive too..."
Girolamo is - for the most part - an ordinary man who simply seeks to survive in the world in whatever way possible. He recognizes that evil things sometimes need to be done if one wishes to survive and he is generally laid-back. Girolamo tries to take pleasure wherever he can for despite his seemingly unworried attitude, he does house many doubts in his heart and fears that the end may be nigh not only for himself but for many others.
Girolamo has explored most of Eridanus and knows much about it just as he knows much about the people within the towns having interacted with them and many of the groups within. Indeed, Girolamo calls Muisyle "the city of sin" and not just because of what he's seen in there...
Well groomed and handsome, Girolamo is a lady's man and enjoys the many pleasures he can get from women while ensuring that their desires are fulfilled in turn. Girolamo would much rather wear cozy and nicely designed fashionable clothing than armor.
Girolamo is a romanceable companion. The romance can be purely lust based or love based.
"Now I realize that the time of being a farm girl is over. I have to step up and take the fight to evil. What more do I have left to live for without my family?"
Serena is a rather young woman who worships The Goddess and initially worked on the farm and practiced music in her spare time. For years she lived a rather happy and ordinary life until the undead outbreak occurred and her family were slain by the monsters. Ever since then, Serena has struggled to find meaning in her life and has simply taken to defending her village from any more evils that could occur.
However the battle isn't just against the undead for there is a battle that Serena does with herself, a battle in the inside where Serena attempts to control her lesbian passions as not only do they conflict with who she wants to be but they conflict with her religion too.
Serena is a romanceable companion. The romance can be purely lust based or love based.
Regular NPC's and how they react to you:
NPC's will comment on you being nude if you decide to run around naked and they will comment on other things too. Your reputation, statistics, quests completed, character traits and (sometimes) items all influence what these NPC's say. This is ignoring the NPC's who you engage in full conversation with who will also have dialogue based on the things above. Not all characters simply comment on things like you being nude either so be warned...
